good to play at carnegie hall. that's what i hear. what area was she from originally? michigan. michigan, okay. it was made by anders halvarson of meyers-halvarson. halvarson actually is... in the history of american violin makers, he's not that well known. halvarson came from sweden in 1923 and worked at one of the major chicago violin shops, which was william lewis & son, and there he worked under carl becker sr. and jr. carl becker sr. is pretty much acknowledged to be one of the greatest american makers of the 20th century, so he had excellent instruction under becker and his son. he bought first-quality wood and made instruments in the basement of this house, and he was extremely industrious. he had a very beautiful, even, orange varnish that he applied by hand, and although there are a couple of scratches in the top, they can easily be retouched. turning the violin, we can see a beautiful flamed maple back, and this is first-quality wood that halvarson probably bought in germany during the late '30s or maybe even the early '50s. it's hard to tell, but it's a one-piece bac
: gramm, michigan, mary, go ahead. caller: good morning, i just wanted to say several things. one, people do not understand that the obama care is directly related to what is going to happen if immigration passes. what is going to happen is americans are going to be forced to be covered by obama care, whereas the bill as it stands now, illegals will not be covered by this, so therefore, who do you think the employer is going to employ? not the american citizen. it will be the person they do not have to give health care to. host: rebecca? guest: i am not a health-care expert, there are interesting conceits to the health care bill that i will fully admit i do not understand. the concern has been raised that especially -- especially, well we are talking about people working off the books, which is a whole nother issue. if you are hiring someone knowing they are undocumented, you are blatantly flaunting the law and is an issue that needs to be addressed. a lot of that comes to a point of verification systems. we need to be able to real-time know whether someone is eligible to work. so, in the
, that is the republican congressman from the great state of michigan soon to be a candidate. the man is in washington no more. congressman mccotter is now former congressman mccotter because of the scandal in trying to get himself reelected. most of the signatures he had were fake. they were fraudulent, photocopied so clumsily because the first word had been cut off, warning about election fraud. since he didn't qualify for the republican primary on account of having no real signatures for his campaign, mccotter not only quit his election race, he quit congress, and resigned with the headline, drag another match. he quit the race and congress just four months before the 2012 election. and that timing created a real mess in his michigan district. the seat he left hanging is a totally overwhelmly republican district, the republicans are guaranteed to win, no matter who they are. and because everybody thought that mccotter would have been reelected to another term no serious candidate challenged him in the republican primary. the only republican in the running was this kind of wacky guy. when mccotter w
states of america could no longer afford paved roads? 38 counties in michigan started grinding their paved roads, their asphalt roads into gravel because they could not afford to keep them paved. in south dakota, 100 miles of asphalt road ground into gravel. in ohio, they couldn't afford to grind down their roads. ohio counties made an official decision to let their paved streets erode into unpaved streets. this started happening in 2009 when the economy was still just spiraling downward. by 2010, it was a national-level story that was covered to great effect in the "wall street journal" and some other places including on this show. it's happening in ohio and it's happening in alabama and it's happening in pennsylvania. which means that somewhere in china, it is entirely possible that a businessperson sat down for a ride on a 200 mile an hour state of art levitating bullet train and cracked open the "wall street journal" and read about how in america, we've decided we can't afford paved roads anymore. that is one of the stories that we did on show that really stuck with me from
: the senator from michigan. mr. levin: mr. president, i ask unanimous consent that further proceedings under the quorum call be dispensed with. mr. president, if you come to my office in the russell building, you will russialy be greeted by one of the young and eager staffers who welcome visitors and who answer the phones at the front desk. every once in a while, you will find instead someone with a little more experience, my chief of staff, who has got now about 30 years of senate service, in fact. now, david lyles often takes time to sit at the front desk and to answer phone calls, not during the slower, easier days of a surgeon summer recess, buts instead when a constituent calls are the hottest and the heaviest. it's his way of staying connected to the flow of feedback coming into the office and of letting the staff know that everybody, from the most experienced staffer to the most recent college graduate, is responsible for responding to the people that we all serve. but it's also his way of providing some relief to the pressure that these young new staffers are under, particularly when
